Mrs. Spitzer's Garden

Mrs. Spritzer's Garden by Edith Pattou and illustrated by Tricia Tusa makes a lovely back to school read or gift for student and teacher alike. Each September the Principal hands Mrs. Spritzer a new packet of seeds, what?? Each September? Okay this is clearly not a spring gardening book. Rather Pattou does a fun play and comparison on how each new class for a teacher is like lovingly tending to a new garden. The plants, I mean students, need lots of care. Each are different, some need lots of light, some more attention, some simply flourish like wild flowers. Each are unique. Mrs. Spritzer spends her year watching over and tending to her new garden, I mean class. Then at the end of the year she gets to stand back and admire all the growth! The drawings are equally lovely and whimsical as the story is.
